They would need big everything, which would be a pleasant change from Reid's undersized philosophy.

Which was the most ridiculous defensive lineman philosophy ever.

Lol! I wouldn't say that Kearse, Thomas, Simon, Douglas or Burgess were under sized lineman in 2004. JJs D also had an incredible secondary, which was made possible because of Dawkins (drafted before Reid). Also, Trotter at 260+ pounds is not a small LB plugging holes to stop the run...

A small, fast D line will get you nothing but garbage stats (sack totals). These stats will be created in the first 5-8 games, then the line will wear down. Taking the stats in context will show them as being almost meaningless (see: Jason Babin).

Any idea if the sanctions at Oregon are going to be worst than previously thought? That could have been Kelly's deciding factor on coming to the NFL.

Oregon coach Chip Kelly will be the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, league sources told ESPN.

Kelly re-emerged as a candidate recently and an agreement was just reached Wednesday.

The Eagles had interviewed Kelly early in its search for a replacement for longtime coach Andy Reid, talking to the coach in Arizona after the Ducks' 35-17 Fiesta Bowl victory over Kansas State.

But sources had told ESPN after the meeting that Kelly had decided to stay at Oregon. The school never made an official announcement regarding Kelly's employment with the team, however.

Kelly is 46-7 in four years as head coach at Oregon. The Ducks have been to four straight BCS bowl games -- including a bid for the national championship against Auburn two seasons ago -- and have won three Pac-12 championships.

He originally came to the Ducks in 2007 as offensive coordinator under Mike Bellotti. Before that, he was offensive coordinator at New Hampshire, where he started devising the innovative hurry-up offense the Ducks are known for today.
